NORCROSS, Ga., June 19, 2014 — The Centrics Group (TCG), a recruiting and staffing agency based in Metro-Atlanta, was featured by LinkedIn in both video and written case studies, each highlighting details on the firm’s successful use of LinkedIn Recruiter to fill IT positions nationwide. LinkedIn praised the agency for its powerful “one-two punch” of sourcing and branding.
Upon reviewing the success TCG achieved with the LinkedIn Recruiter platform, a representative from the social media giant reached out to TCG Managing Partner Kevin Raxter. In each case study, Raxter discusses how the firm’s transition from traditional job boards to LinkedIn Recruiter has modernized the way TCG staffing specialists recruit. This shift toward a more modern recruiting approach has also enabled TCG to tap into the passive recruiting market, which has contributed to a significant increase in overall job placements.
“We not only find the people we’re currently looking for, but we can find passive candidates, have them follow us, and keep them engaged for an opportunity six months down the road,” explained Raxter. “LinkedIn helps us be a lot more proactive in our recruiting efforts, which ultimately increases the quality of our talent pool.”
As a LinkedIn Certified organization, all TCG employees must pass an exam to receive LinkedIn Recruiter licenses. This new strategy has improved all aspects of the TCG recruitment process—the agency has seen a substantial increase in LinkedIn followers and a higher number of qualified job applicants.
